Once summer is in full swing, there’s nothing better than cooling off in the water; and New Smyrna Beach, which is full of ocean and riverside fun, is a great place for it. Whether you enjoy beach time, pool time, boating, swimming, fishing or watersports, New Smyrna Beach is the place for you!
First-off, New Smyrna offers miles and miles of beautiful beaches. There are designated beach areas with hard-packed sand that you can drive right on and no-driving portions of the beach for quieter, relaxing beaching.
With tons of inshore fishing holes, easy access to the ocean and its deep sea fishing and freshwater rivers just brimming with bass, New Smyrna Beach is a fisher person’s paradise. You won’t believe how many species of fish we have in New Smyrna; and there are plenty of opportunities for clamming and crabbing too…which can also be boatloads of fun.
If you’re into watersports, you can rent a paddleboard or kayak and get in some exercise while you take in all the beautiful views and varied wildlife along the riverbanks and beaches; or turn it up a notch, rent a Jet Ski and hit those wakes. Don’t know if you know it, but New Smyrna is a famous surf town too.
You can snorkel, waterski or go tubing. Take a leisurely boat ride along the picturesque Intracoastal Waterway or tie up to your favorite waterfront restaurant or watering hole. Book an eco-tour along Indian River and Canaveral National Seashore or go exploring on your own by boat. You may even find Disappearing Island!
